A "stealthily original" (The New York Times Book Review) debut novel of two people who find each other when they least expect it in a city haunted by history.BR
Walter Baum has one of the most famous voices in Germany. A former television star, he's been dubbing Tom Cruise's lines into German for fifteen years. Now he finds himself nearing forty, alone and adrift. In the apartment below is Hope, a young American woman, isolated in a lonely city. When they finally meet in the elevator of the building they share, what transpires is "an essential love story for our confused and difficult times."(Gary Shteyngart, author of Absurdistan)

I love finding a new book by an author I haven't heard of, and thats made all the better when the author has such talent it gives you more to look forward to. This story about two Americans who happen to live in the same apartment building in Berlin reveals a story about connecting with strangers and remembering what humanity means all over the world. If you liked the solemn melancholy and sly sit of the film 'Lost in Translation', you will appreciate this book. The author is a stunning writer. You will want to read some passages aloud just to hear the words over and over again.
